We did this and the wind caves by taxi. A good day out. This was like something out of lord of the rings or the Hobbit.

An amazing view from the top of the cave looking down. You cannot imagine how big the main cave is until you are standing at the top looking down. An impressive piece of natural wonder. Stairs to start of the cave are good. Much better than the old stairs that can be seen off to the side. Once in the... More

Absolutely stunning if your in Kuching you have to go! You can get to the Fairy cave by public transport but getting to the wind cave from here is quite tricky... we ended up hiring a private taxi.

Very impressive cave system, with a huge main chamber that is easily accessible on foot. Lots of stairs, but worth the trip.

This "eerie yet not so" cave is hardly an hour drive from Kuching city over tarsealed road right to the entrance. Local public transport also pass through the site. Equipped with safety steps from the foot to the entrance then the inside, it is also easily accessible by young children. It is located almost in a single limestone outcrop in... More

Very magical atmosphere in this huge cave. I half expected Snow White and the seven dwarves to appear, or Tinkerbell type fairies! Husband enjoyed photographing a small snake and scorpions. Huge number of stairs to get up to cave and then inside of cave- so no wheelchairs to this one! We did Wind Cave which is nearby too, but this... More

Cave is very nice, lot of beautiful pictures to take, it's different from others and I would recommend it to visit while there. You need to be bit careful as others mentioned but don't be scared it's just normal for a caves, I've never been in cave that you don't have to watch your steps. It's all fine.

This cave located around an hour drive from kuching. Public transport not so efficient to this route. Using public bus...u need to walk for a kilometer from the drop off junction. Torchlight is a must...some part too dark along the way up to the cave...slippery area most of it.

Went here early morning. The caves are magnificent,but be aware that the steps and safety rails are not the best. Very slippery and in need of some repair. As an older couple and reasonable fit felt that the safety precautions could be a little improved. Still it was a good day and would recommend

The fairy caves doesn't attract too many tourists and if you are lucky to avoid the crowds, you will find yourself alone in the slightly lit up cave, looking over a damp and moist Jurassic Park landscape.
